It’s hard to believe that 60 years have passed since Eleanor Roosevelt wrote the moving words within the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and then learn that less than 5% of the world is even aware of its existence.

Seth Brau’s black and sepia tone animation not only celebrates this milestone but also makes the words come alive. His captivating clip took just over a month to produce, and he used the complete artistic freedom he was given to great effect. He used a mix of After Effects and Illustrator to flawlessly connect the 30 articles of the declaration.

His work helps spread the message of this remarkable declaration and make more people aware that there are so many other places in this world where freedom is still just a word. Stats for Animated Historic Documents Trending: Older & Mild
